SMILES! Baby S is ALL smiles this month, and is just the absolute sweetest. She is very interested in the world around her, and loves to be talked to.

S's schedule has been relatively consistent this month. She wakes up around 7:30am, naps when she can...usually in the car seat while we are traveling here or there...and is cashed out for the day around 8-8:30pm. She has been sleeping through the night since 4 weeks, but REFUSES to lay flat on her back, so is still in the rock'n'play for naps at home and bedtime. I continue to put her in a swaddle sleep sack at night, but she likes to wiggle around until she busts out a hand or two, so next month we'll probably transition to no swaddling.

S hasn't really been too interested in toys yet, but continues to enjoy kicking around on her Lovevery play mat and trying to figure out the hanging toys. 

S is her big brothers' little sidekick for most story times throughout the day. Approximately half of those story times take place while she is nursing...but who's counting? Most of our books involve construction equipment, trucks, sports, or trains, so she is pretty well versed in all things BOY, but hasn't read any 'girly' books yet.

milk.Milk.MILK. S continues to nurse for nearly 100% of her nutrition, but...I DID get her to take TWO small 2 oz. bottles this month - the first was breastmilk, while the second was formula. She took the first much easier, but after crying for about 10-15 minutes, I did eventually get her to take  the bottle of formula (a.k.a. she exhausted herself fighting it and finally gave in). I'm hoping to get her to take a couple of ounces at least once or twice a week so that I can have a little freedom to leave her for more than a couple hours at a time, or enjoy a second glass of wine at dinner!
